Callibaetis ferrugineus hageni
Hi Donna-

I believe this mayfly female subimago to be Callibaetis ferrugineus hageni.

Moved for expert attention
Moved from ID Request.

What are the consequences of having the photo moved to expert attention? thanks

moved to expert attention (or other similar wording)
Dr. Carriere-

Photos are often moved to order level by an insect taxonomy generalist. The consequence is that it saves a specialist in that insect order from having to wade through all id requests to locate those in which a contributing editor specializes. The practice results in significantly improved turnaround and accuracy in the servicing of id requests. Or so it seems from my knothole.
